The Devil And The Almighty Blues to worship the linneage of Robert Johnson at Roadburn 2017

Heavily inspired by Delta blues, and standing at the crossroads of both American and British blues-based rock, The Devil and the Almighty Blues hail about as far from that unmarked place where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil as one can be – Oslo, Norway; a source of inpiration to Roadburn though, hence our lineage with the inspiring country’s take on all things metal.

In our ongoing quest to bring some of Norway‘s most exciting underground bands, as well as the more established black and prog metal innovators to Roadburn, we’re very thrilled to present The Devil and the Almighty Blues on Thursday, April 20, at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

On their much acclaimed, self-titled, debut album, which is hands down one of the heaviest and coolest blues-based albums ever to be released from Norway, The Devil and the Almighty Blues offer a new take on this traditional genre – by infusing all the world’s other sub-genres of rock, from punk to garage rock, and from heavy psych to southern sludge, the band sounds heavy without becoming too metal, slow without being doom, and raw, fucked up and bluesy without being predictable, or losing the blues’ muddy origins.

The band said: “We’re stoked and honoured to be a part of this amazing line-up. Walter is the wizard of Roadburn, making this a one-of-a-kind festival a highlight every f***ing year.”

Welcome to The Devil and the Almighty Blues‘ highly electric worship at the altar of Robert Johnson – are you ready for one of Roadburn 2017‘s undisputed highlights? We are…
